Need a weekend or evening appointment?
You can book to see a GP, nurse or arrange a blood test in the evening, at weekends and on Bank Holidays. Physio assessments are also available any weekday evening.

In Participating pharmacies, your local pharmacist can now give advice and treat minor ailments from coughs and colds through to worms and thrush – you do not need an appointment. The service is free to our patients, but for those who are not exempt from prescription charges, you will either pay the cost of the medicine or the prescription charge, whichever is the lowest. Many pharmacies operate extended hours on a rota basis. For more details call NHS 111 on 111.
